Obi Wan le da la vuelta al mundo

empieza a parecerse mas a Chewbaca... (yeah like the chicks mind...)

New York, July 29 – The Grizzly Adams-looking dude who rode into Battery Park on a motorbike turned out to be actor Ewan McGregor. He and buddy Charley Boorman rode 20,000 miles around the world, starting from London in April and ending in NYC. In between, they roared through Central Europe, Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Siberia, Alaska and Canada. Their journey was filmed for a TV show called Long Way Round, to be broadcast in the UK and the USA, on October 20, and 28th, respectively.

The bikers marked the end of their adventure on a hot July day where boats sail into New York harbor for the Statue of Liberty. They slowly rode their BMW choppers up the promenade, shook enormous bottles of Mumm’s champagne before uncorking them and spraying each other and everything else nearby, including us.
